The prime reason is the lack of support to our contigent which has suffered losses or exit due to close decisions going against them in boxing, badminton & archery. It has been not that dismal performance which the medals tally indicates. Hope, it is rectified by the authorities & we get better results from our athletes!!

1. We dont have a dedicated system to provide back up support round the year for sportsmen / athletes
2. Even when officials in numbers do make the trip to Olympics....the coaches and physios ...who are necessary for optimum performance leves...are side tracked and left behind.
3. Every country starts off on their Olympic preparation and selection immediattely after the finish of the last one...whereas we are lax and delay it till the last moment.
4. Our politicians and committe members are more interested in filching from the kitty than providing for facilities.
So what does one expect...our sportsmen lack the motivation and the instinct to become winners...because of all the above !

If you talk about the poor performance in sports there are various reasons. I had written an article "Whats wrong with Indian sport" about 15 years back. The irony is that most of the things are still the same, even though there have been some positive changes. The abridged version of the reasons I have mentioned is in an answer I have given in response to a similar question asked few days back.
As for this Olympics I think till now only two serious medal contenders - Abhinav Bindra in shooting and Deepika kumari in archery have been eliminated. There are about 5-6 medal contenders left and I hope they will do well.

Most of Us lack the Killing Instincts which is an inevitable part of one's personality and attitude .Jarrurat say jyaadaa "Santoshee" honaa bhee ek main reason hain . Where participation gets more satisfaction over the winning .
